What is this movie from around the 70's?

Around the mid to late 70's there was a movie that was about a telethon or something of that nature. There was a woman that wound up making out or even sucking a guys nose. The name might have had America or American in it... not sure. Please help. I have looked on the internet and can not find it. You are my only hope.

    I recall seeing this ages ago on HBO and haven't seen it since. But, it's not easily forgotten, being such a strange movie. By the way, Zane Buzby portrays the lady sucking President Roosevelt's (John Ritter's) nose.
